Hi Jose my neighbour.
Another excellent photo of this lunch :)
Perfect point of view. Amazing colours. Great sharpness.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Jose,
I first thought that you have presented the same picture than yesterday, but than I realized that it is a new one. This female seems to be a good hunter. Great capture again ! Sharpness seems to be slightly better on the picture of yesterday, but I prefer the background of today.
Best wishes,

  • Great

Very nice Jose, the shrimps sets it apart


Hello Jose,
For me a first to see a King Fisher catching a Shrimp. What a lucky man you are to be able to capture this with such perfect clarity and detail. Colours, POV and contrasting BG is excellent my friend. Well done.
Best regards,

Ciao Jose. Altra grande cattura per A. attis. Ed ancora dettaglio e nitidezza eccellenti con un fantastico occhio a fuoco. Magnifici colori.
